by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:11 am ET) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado is 8 for 10 with a double, two homers and three RBI in two games against the Nationals this week, notes MASNSports.com. He's 12 for 21 since returning from his suspension.

Nolan Reimold drives in three in third game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9:56 am ET) Blue Jays outfielder Nolan Reimold has had a soft landing since joining the Blue Jays, as he put together his second multi-hit effort in a row Wednesday against the Angels.

Reimold, who went 2 for 4 with a pair of doubles Tuesday, followed that up with another 2-for-4 effort Wednesday. He had one double Wednesday, and drove in three runs, while adding a walk in an 8-7 loss.

Reimold was acquired by the Blue Jays after the Orioles waived him following a rehab assignment. Prior to this week, he had not played since May, 2013, due to neck problems.


Eric Hosmer homers, reaches four times in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9:48 am ET) Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer reached base four times Wednesday, in a 5-4 win over the Rays.

Hosmer extended his hitting streak to nine games by going 1 for 2 with a home run, but he did extra damage without swinging the bat. Hosmer walked four times and scored twice in the win.

Hosmer has struggled through the first half of the season, but is hitting .400 with eight walks over his last nine games. He is hitting .260/.310/.366 in 369 at-bats overall.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Kyle Hendricks gets the call for debut
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9:21 am ET) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks was promoted from Triple-A Iowa Thursday, ahead of his major-league debut against the Reds.

Hendricks had a 10-5 records and 3.59 ERA in 102 2/3 innings for Iowa.


Dallas Beeler sent down Thursday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9:14 am ET) The Cubs optioned pitcher Dallas Beeler to Triple-A Iowa Thursday, to make room on the roster for the promotion of Kyle Hendricks.

Beeler started two games for the Cubs, allowing four earned runs over 11 innings, but it is not clear when he will return to the rotation. 


Stephen Vogt slugs third home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:53 am ET) Athletics catcher Stephen Vogt went 2 for 2 with a walk and a solo home run in his team's 5-2 loss to the Giants Wednesday.

Vogt made his third start at first base in the game and extended his hitting streak to nine games. He has hit .366/.394/.538 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 93 at-bats. If Vogt continues to post elite numbers at the plate, the team could decide to give him more action at first base in an attempt to play both hot-hitting catchers at one.


Ehire Adrianza rejoins Giants Thursday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:49 am ET) Giants infielder Ehire Adrianza was activated from the disabled list after Wednesday's game.

Adrianza, who takes the roster spot of Juan Perez, had been sidelined since June 21 while recovering from a hamstring strain. He returns to a .213/.259/.267 line in 75 at-bats.
